It's always nice for tax season to be over. But, if you happen to get a refund, the next step is deciding what to do with the money. Sure, saving seems sensible, but what if there's something you've had your eye on for a while?

For the tech savvy type, two of the most appealing prospects on the market are Apple's iPad and Adobe's soon-to-be-released CS5. Lately, the two companies have grown further apart after Apple's backing of HTML5 over Flash and the more recent move to prohibit Adobe's "workaround" solution for app developers.

The companies have made their choices, but what remains to be seen is how consumers respond. The only trouble is that, in some cases, they're both going after the same customers. However, for many, Adobe software seems to be more of an industry standard than Apple's hardware. Soon the choice will be in our hands.

I'd personally be inclined to choose newer software over newer hardware. But that's me.
